The location was great in a nice quiet area but close to neighboring cities such as St. Joseph which is beautiful. We were also close to several wineries near and in Baroda which were also nice. We were served a wonderful breakfast both mornings and the owner was very welcoming, friendly, and provided us with information and suggestions for places... More

We were expecting the 'charm' of the exterior as we drove up. It looked like a house built in the 80's for the sole purpose of a B&B. We never met or saw John and after reading the reviews were excited to at least hear one story, though we heard he was there :) Our reception upon arrival seemed chilly... More

We have just returned from our stay in The Royal Oak Room at The Dove Nest. We, reluctantly, said our farewells to the owners, Jitka and John but, the feeling of being enveloped in Old Word charm, gentility and service came home with us. We shall return to meet Jitka, John and Company soon. This B&B in every detail is... More

Great hosts! Great place! For a 1st ever experience at a B&B the bar was set very high. The breakfast food was excellent. Use as hub to explore nearby wineries or sit outside and enjoy the landscaping

John and Jitka are gracious hosts. The Doves Nest is so well done. Everything is perfectly planned for relaxation which is what we did. The various settings they advertise are as described in their brochure. The sounds of the birds that echo in the wooded area are great. Sitting by the Koi pond is just perfect if you want quiet....

We really enjoyed our relaxing stay in St. Joseph at this nice little bed and breakfast. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully arranged both mornings of our stay, and everything was very clean. We also had a nice ice cream snack on both afternoons! Jitka was friendly and accommodating, we felt at home, and would return again!

St. Joe's has your typical chain hotels, Holiday Inn, etc... We wanted something a little more special and unique, and this was it! John and Jitka are incredible hosts! Breakfast was amazing every morning, rooms are all unique and not cookie cutter, very clean, plenty of parking, very quiet and relaxing, you can't go wrong!

My husband and I fell in love with this B&B last July and decided to stay again over the Valentine's Day weekend. Once again, we were so impressed with the cleanliness of the inn and the delicious three course breakfasts served each morning. John and Jitka put a great deal of thought, heart and soul into everything they do. We... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Dove Nest from Friday to Sunday over Valentine's Day Weekend. John Nelson was a wondeful innkeeper and made us feel very welcome. We stayed in the Garden Victoria room and I have never stayed in a cleaner hotel or b&b room ever. The room was very cozy and we did not want to leave.... More

We stayed Sat/Sun in January (girlfriends getaway trip). Our hosts were very helpful, friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was amazing, so delicious!! The place is beautiful, relaxing and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the overall environment is fantastic. We had such a nice relaxing time! Highly recommended! Can't wait to come back in summer time and do wineries,... More
